Some of you might have noticed the SAVE OUR PARKING poster hanging on the front door; if you don’t know what the deal there is, here’s a quick synopsis: the GRTC is trying to push forward with a plan to build a rapid transit bus system, that would operate in the left lane on both sides of Broad Street from Boulevard to Rocket’s Landing and perhaps further. While that sounds kinda neat, it could actually be catastrophic for businesses and residents alike, as it will eliminate most of the parking on Broad Street, remove the ability to make left turns (like Zoolander!) except every 6-8 blocks, and remove people’s ability to cross the street except at designated spots several blocks away from each other. Events like Broad Appetit and First Fridays would be fatally hamstrung. Luckily, organizations like the Fan District Association have gotten involved, writing a scathing letter of critique of the GRTC’s handling of the development-- the GRTC has admitted there have been no impact studies done. We are asking our customers to consider the pros and cons of such a system, and there is a plan in action to get the GRTC to postpone breaking ground on the year-long construction so that impact studies can be done by independent parties. If you’d like to learn more about what’s up, please visit http://www.rvasmarttransit.
